Our Relationship with McDonald's
McDonald’s has been the RMHC Mission Partner since the first Ronald McDonald House was built in Philadelphia in 1974. The entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped us support families with sick children providing stability and vital resources.
Ronald McDonald House Akron (RMHA) is autonomous, raising its own funding. Through Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeastern Ohio (RMHC-NEO) the local McDonald’s Owner/Operators provide approximately 3-4% of our annual operating budget. The remaining expenses are covered through community giving; individuals, corporations, and foundations. The assistance of volunteers and generous in-kind contributions also plays an important role in serving the daily needs of families that turn to RMHA.
